When you take it back and forth, you secure the edges but the middle of the coil will be the weakest point.
I have said before, when using a dripper sometimes I forget
Let me begin where so many shoddy ad writers always begin -- with a terrible and heavy handed analogy:
The taste of Maha Ras is like strolling through an Indian herb garden that was planted in Jamaica and inhaled on some unlikely brisk and dewy morning……or like being in that very same herb garden, blissfully ignoring its odd culturally mismatched mashup, and it’s like only a little chilly outside-- not so much temperature as it’s the windiness from it being an island and maybe

Note: If you haven't already; read part 1 first.
Lets start by defining a few words in laymans terms.
Adhesion: bonding together of unlike substances (molecules in our case)
Fused: or fusing: joining together of like substances in the molten or near molten state.
Alumina: Aluminum oxide: the non-conductive and heat resistance coating formed on resistance wire when we heat our coils.
Covalent bond: the molecular alignment of atoms within

Short answer: Only if contaminated with flavored juice. Many of you may have noticed that the winds of old gunky coils removed from tanks or drippers seem to be stuck together. Gently pulling on the legs reveals that they are indeed stuck together. Firmly adhered at that. But lesser so if the coil was recently dryburned. Raised my curiosity so I started some experiments a while ago.
Ran tests for adhesion on a dozen coils on a dripper where coils could be removed for testing without
